2011 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Harrison Barnes


Position: Small Forward

Size: 6-8, 210

School: North Carolina, Freshman


Strengths:
  • Tremendous athlete
  • Ability to attack the basket
  • Great body control
  • Creates his own shot
  • Pull-up jumper
  • Backs down smaller defenders
  • Very unselfish
  • Good passer
  • Active on the defensive end
  • Outstanding work ethic
  • High character



    Weaknesses:
  • Tends to over-dribble
  • Ball-handling
  • Decent perimeter shooter but his outside range needs some work
  • Shot selection
  • Needs to get stronger

    Summary: Despite struggling with the high expectations casted upon him before he even stepped onto the floor as a Tar Heel, Barnes is still one of the top prospects for the 2011 NBA Draft. He has a complete all-around game on the offensive end and will end up being a special player at the next level.

    Player Comparison: Tracy McGrady. Think T-Mac early in his career, and not the washed-up, injury-riddled version we have seen the past couple of years. Barnes has an offensive game similar to McGrady though McGrady was more skilled than Barnes with the ball in his hands early in his career. Barnes can create his own shots, get to the basket, is loaded with potential and is still trying to become a true threat from the perimeter just like McGrady in his early NBA days.
